Blackpool are going up

Lincoln have done exceptionally well to reach the playoff final but this is where the dream ends for them. Why? They've actually been on a pretty poor run of form with just one win from their last five games. Blackpool meanwhile have lost just two of their last 24 and are unbeaten in six having won five of those games. There is a reason why we're only making the prediction that Blackpool win promotion though – rather than tipping them to win in 90 minutes. They've failed to beat Lincoln in the last three meetings so don't be surprised if extra time and, perhaps, penalties decide this one.

Both sets of fans to celebrate a Wembley goal

If you look purely at the form book of each side, you might be inclined to opt for ‘no' in the both teams to score market. Our prediction says you shouldn't do that. For starters both playoff semi-final second legs saw both teams score with Blackpool drawing 3-3 and Lincoln losing 2-1. Then there is the head to head record that shows that the last two meetings between this duo have seen goals at both ends and, finally, you've got the small fact that this game is the playoff final. The last three League One playoff finals have seen both teams score.

A final with a few goals

If both teams to score was a prediction that potentially contradicts the form of Blackpool and Lincoln over the last five games then backing over 2.5 goals is less so. Both sides have seen three of their last five games contain a minimum of three goals. Then, much like with the last prediction, a look at the h2h games and playoff history combine to paint a compelling picture. Three of the last five matches involving Blackpool and Lincoln have gone over 2.5 goals with the previous two games forming part of that trio of high scoring games. As for the League One playoff finals, eight of the last 10 have been over two goals.
